We didn't think we were introducing a "new FFS", just an ffs with larger
inodes and a few things thrown in them. That's why we didn't think it was
as huge a deal as it seems to have become.

All of the fs behavior, as related to the fields in struct dinode, remains
the same.

Obviously this mindset wasn't clear in my EMail... Sorry.
